Drakenstein Stud’s top-class resident sire What A Winter looks to have a really smart son in his hands in the form of Love In Winter.
The latter made it three wins from three starts when scoring a thrilling victory at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Saturday afternoon.
A facile winner on debut, before following that win up with a triumph over 1000m at Durbanville, four-year-old Love In Winter was sent off tote favourite for Saturday’s www.hollywoodbets.net Middle Stakes (1100m) while making his Kenilworth debut.
Under Corne Orffer, the What A Winter colt came with a late rattle down the inside of the track before staying on gamely to hold off a fast finishing Tchaikovsky and score by a short head.
Bred by Klawervlei Stud, the Vaughan Marshall trained Love In Winter is out of the Dark Angel mare Lost In Love.
His four time G1 winning sire What A Winter is currently responsible for more than 20 stakes winners as well as impressive recent The Ready To Run Stakes winner Seeking The One.
South Africa’s Leading Sire of 2YOs in 2020-2021, What A Winter has four lots on offer at the upcoming November Two Year Old Sale including a filly (Lot 17) from the family of champion fillies Typhoon Tracy and Tracy’s Element, and a colt (Lot 182) out of a G3 winning daughter of High Chaparral.
